Top 5 things to see on a Rome bus tour

From hop on hop off bus tours around the Eternal City, to small coach excursions, to the more far-flung sights, here are some of the best things you can do on a bus tour around Rome.

Colosseum

Colosseum

Marvel at Rome's famous Colosseum as well as other nearby attractions. While in the area, your bus will also pass the Roman Forum and the Arch of Constantine!

Appian Way

This historically strategic road – along which Spartacus' army was crucified – dates back to 312 BC. Bus tours can help discover ancient aqueducts and the Tomb of Cecilia Metella.

St. Peter's Basilica

St. Peter's Basilica

The largest church in the world is a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. Supposedly, it was built over the burial place of St. Peter, the apostle and first Pope of Rome.

Catacombs of Rome

Catacombs of Rome

Rome has no less than 40 mass tombs buried beneath its suburbs. The best way to visit the Catacombs is as part of a bus tour that includes stops for exploring!

Piazza Venezia

Piazza Venezia

The name of this huge piazza derives from the square's Venetian Palace. However, it'll be the National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II that catches your eye!

Planning Your Visit

What time of day to go?

If you plan on booking a bus tour that allows stops to alight and explore – whether within the city or outside of its limits – it's best to leave as early as possible to avoid crowds and traffic. However, if you're merely after great views from your window seat, why not tour the city by night, when many of its monuments will be spectacularly lit?

How much does it cost?

Prices for Rome bus tour tickets start at €10 for a basic hop-on hop-off package, to over €100 for small-group tours that include attraction tickets and/or meals.

What people are saying about Rome

Fantabulous tour experience by Robert M. from CityWonders

The tour experience is likened to a delizioso tagliolini in aglio olio. The lovely sights are like main ingredients; olive oil, garlic & red pepper flakes coming together in a large pan and Robert is the chef! He is the one that strings all the important pieces together to make this an unforgettable experience for us. Robert is very knowledgeable with all the historical cultures of not only Pompeii but also of Italy. He shared many interesting legends and stories that makes the whole journey so much fun and enjoyable. Robert is also super caring towards everyone in making sure that we’re feeling comfortable and doing alright. His subliminal dark humour is already worth the ticket price for the tour, let alone all the invaluable insights and informations. i would give a 3 thumbs up if i can but last i checked, i have only 2 thumbs just like everyone else...so it’s a 2 thumbs up from me and 2 thumbs up from my wife!

Naples and Pompeii Rewind, A Must Before You Die

I travel very often as an international scholar, graduate student and a global traveler. This is one of the best and most reasonable rate anyone can have for what it had to offer. I’ve been to Naples a couple of times but having Sylvia and Bruno of GYG. Com handle your trip made it the best for us. I was able to see and understand the Pompeii Event, enjoyed the food, people and landmarks of Naples...with every detail going back several thousand years. I highly recommend this contractor to anyone and if you haven’t seen Naples, call them and enjoy this place before you go to your box! No offense to the “box” was trying to emphasize a point!

The tour is excellent, quick and easy tour to Rome

The tour itself is excellent, the guide is very enthusiastic. Easy to find the meeting point and convenient drop off. The only draw back is they could manage the timing of the bus better. The bus send us back to the port 25 mins later than expected, leaving us only 5 mins before the all aboard time. So a group of us have to run to the port shuttle to catch the last shuttle back to ship. A bit scared that we would miss the ship but luckily we are all fine and we are not alone.

Panoramic Bus Tour of Rome from Civitavecchia Port Reviewed by Anonymous, 14/07/2019

Excellence in information and entertainment ...

Mikaela B is the tour guide extraordinaire. Approachable, energetic, brilliant fund of knowledge, comfortable presentation for all patrons. Julio has the master driving skills. Everyone felt safe and confident with Julio at the transportation helm. Consideration: condition of bus was poor: dirty windows, interior was very unclean, seats need repair. CityWonder professional staff are too good to be compromised by less than satisfactory facilities.

A relaxing way to see the beautiful historical city of Rome

Sitting upstairs on an open sided bus was a perfect way to explore the sights of Rome on a very hot dayLearning a bit of the history of the amazing remaining structures and the way of life in ancient times has inspired me to find out more and go back to explore in more depth. I would highly recommend this tour.
